I am considering maybe signing up for leverageland. I dunno, though. I've never done a Land Comm before. What if I don't like it? What if I don't have time? What if I freeze up and none of the challenges inspire me? Why am I making this so hard? Urgh.

In other news, goddamn, it's hot here. I know there's been like hurricanes and flooding and power outages and whatnot up north and I'm real sorry about that but ... we're sweating down here, people, and I'm gonna need to talk about that for a minute. It's been over 100 degrees here every single day of August except one. And a goodly portion of July, too. You know how many 100+ days we get in an average year around here? Eight. We've had something like 40 this year. Not okay. We're supposed to have humidity. That's our thing. It's hot, but not THAT hot because our humidity is so bad that it feels hotter than it is. Except not this year. This year it's actually that hot AND it feels even hotter. Also, it doesn't freaking cool off at night here, so the average temp most days is above 90. That's right, the AVERAGE of the high and low temp is still above 90 damn degrees. Again, I say urgh.

Okay, I'm done bitching now.

To make up for it, here is a gif of Eliot tearing the head off a pinata. You're welcome.

Leverageland is awesome! Join us! It's pretty relaxed and friendly, and I've had fun times there. :)

Hi, by the way. :D

I'm actually in leverageland, on Team Hacker (plz join us...it's the age of the geek, bb!). This is generally how my life is: very calm or very hectic. But I treat LL challenges as something on my to-do list...I actually put the challenge due sates in my organiser along with all my work stuff to help me treat it like work & get it done. It's allowed me to bond with Leverage lovers (always need more of those) & stretch my creative muscles (I made icons. That's right...ME, the Graphically Challenged). That said, ur minimum is participating in 1 challenger per week, so if ur swamped u can skip a few. The key tho, is for each team to max out participation, even if u don't always win individual challenges in a heist.

I can't help u with ur summer :( *hugs* or rather *virtual AC*

Okay, it sounds do-able. Application submitted. I couldn't in good conscience request anything but Team Hitter as my 1st choice, though. The heart wants what it wants.

Yaay :) WELCOME. Tho, dood, did I just _add_ to the ranks of the competition?? :S

Yeah, I'm so tempted myself but I'm currently trying my hardest to destressify my life, so signing up seemed really unwise right now. Maybe next time, sounds like a lot of fun.

edited for spelling, yikes.

I will let you know how stressifying it is. Hopefully not very.

Re: heat -- OMG, right? Austin has had 70+ days of triple digit heat this year, which breaks the 1925 record. That combined with the insane drought is just craziness. I hear it's going to rain next Thursday. Here's hoping.

Yeah, you guys must be baking up there. That's what happens when you're that much closer to Dallas. ;)

Supposedly there's a chance we might be getting a tropical storm. A girl can dream.

Thank you! *blush* People seem to say that a lot. It makes me wish I'd moved to LA when I was young and tried to be a TV writer. Oh well. Bygones.
